I do ice twice a day for 40 minutes, each time. I take anti-inflammatory medication, vioxx 25mg and exercises given to me in pt. I have had this for 3 years, starting in my right hip and going to my left a year ago. I still have it even with the above. I think there is not much one can do for hip bursitis and I was thinking of trying pain management. Maybe they would have more ideas. It is worth a try. Good Luck!
